Mango Kiwi Smoothie (No Banana)

Tropical mango kiwi smoothie is creamy, naturally sweetened, and is ready in just 5 minutes making it a great breakfast option or snack.

This refreshing smoothie is made with a combination of fresh and frozen fruit. You can enjoy it any time, but I find it to be best enjoyed during the summer months, especially if you live in a cold climate. Either way, it’s a great way to get extra nutrients in.

Main Ingredients

  • Green kiwi fruit – this tart, sour, lightly sweet fruit is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants and is a great source of fiber.
  • Frozen mango – this tropical fruit adds creaminess and natural sweetness.
  • Spinach – an easy way to add extra fiber plus it helps give this green smoothie its green color.
  • Dairy-free yogurt – adds creaminess.
  • Blending liquid – water, coconut water, almond milk, coconut milk, orange juice, etc.
  • Raw honey – adds a hint of natural sweetness.

How to Make Mango Kiwi Smoothie

Step 1. Blend the spinach and blending liquid of choice until smooth.

Step 2. Add in the kiwi, mango, and yogurt. Blend until completely smooth, taste, and adjust the sweetness by adding in the honey if needed.

Make It Your Way: Substitutions & Variations

Please remember that recipes are just a starting point.

How can you make this mango kiwi smoothie recipe using what you already have? Here are some ideas…

  • No frozen mango? – you can also use fresh fruit. Fresh ripe mango would be delicious if it’s in season. If not, use frozen or fresh pineapple or any other tropical fruits.
  • No dairy-free yogurt? – sub half of a frozen banana or avocado for a similar creamy texture.
  • Make it vegan – sub maple syrup for the honey.
  • Add-ins – ice cubes if using fresh mango, a spoonful of nut butter, protein powder, chia seeds, flax seed, etc., or top with granola.

Variations

  • Make a smoothie bowl – use less liquid than you would for a kiwi mango smoothie.
  • Banana mango kiwi smoothie – add fresh or frozen banana to naturally sweeten it up and give it an even creamier texture.

Helpful Tips

Food waste tip – If you have any fresh spinach that’s about to go bad, throw it in the freezer. This prevents it from turning to slime and now is a great ingredient for adding to smoothies like this one.

Getting the best consistency – Use a mix of frozen and fresh ingredients. This will keep your smoothie cold and help with the creamy factor. For the best results, use a high-powered blender
